Remember Sara Evans’ First No. 1 Hit?

Subscribe to KLAW-FM on

Sara Evans has had a string of No. 1 singles throughout her career, but it wasn’t until her second album that the Missouri native scored her first chart-topper. In 1998, Evans saw her first breakthrough hit with “No Place That Far,” the title track off her sophomore album.

The song itself is a beautiful piano ballad that features Evans’ delicate vocals at the forefront as she sings of her greatest fear — waking up without her love near her.

“I can’t imagine any greater fear / Then waking up without you here / And though the sun will still shine on / My whole world would all be gone / But not for long,” she sings.

Evans co-wrote the song with Tony Martin and Tom Shapiro, and it features Vince Gill on backing vocals. The song was critically successful, earning the singer her first CMA Awards nomination for Vocal Event of the Year for her collaboration with Gill.

“No Place That Far” was also Evans’ first Top 40 hit on Billboard‘s Hot Country Songs chart. She followed that success with several additional No. 1 hits including “Born to Fly,” “Suds in the Bucket,” “A Real Fine Place to Start” and most recently, 2010’s “A Little Bit Stronger.”

In 2016 Evans signed with Sugar Hill Records to record a new studio album, which is tentatively slated for release in 2017. The singer was reported to have split with Sony and RCA, her label home of nearly 20 years, in February of 2016. She had been with Sony Music Nashville since her debut album, Three Chords and the Truth, in 1997.
